ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study which examines the importance of the top management teams (TMTs) and positive work relationship in high-and low-technology industries in Israel. The hypothesis that generativity mediates the relationship between strategic adaptability and team caring, and the micro-foundations of strategic management are investigated. It suggests that caring among team members helps build capacity to adapt to environmental crises at the same time helps TMTs cope with difficulties, adapt and grow.
